A lavishly illustrated catalog for a show at the Museu Picasso in Barcelona, organized under director Oca?a, this book provides studies of the formative years of Picasso through his use of landscape. In a series of independent essays by a variety of authorities on the artist, landscape is used to discuss Picasso's various transformations, from his beginnings under his father's tutelege, to abandonment of official art, to the influences of the Saffron Group, Munch, the Nabis, African sculpture, Impressionism, and Cezanne. Picasso's work, his Cubist collaboration with Braque, the intense colors of his palette, flatness and rhythm?all are narrowly analyzed in the fully footnoted essays, which sometimes overlap. The book also discusses how Picasso loved the life and scenery of rural Spain, what painting landscape meant to him, and how his later work assimilated this early period. Each essay is followed by a portfolio of color reproductions, and a chronology and bibliography are included at the back of the book. Overall, this unique title will be sought by students of Picasso and 20th-century art. Recomended for special collections.?Ellen Bates, New York
